CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said “What’s It Worth Timmins?” is on Saturday. It is, in fact, on Sunday, Sept. 29. My Timmins Now Dot Com apologizes for the error.
An event on Sunday afternoon at the main branch of the Timmins Public Library might remind you of the Antiques Roadshow, except it only deals with money.
“Any coin, any bill, anywhere in the world,” says Orest Lawryniw of the Timmins Coin Club says of “What’s It Worth, Timmins?”.
“It’s our annual event where people can bring in coins, bank notes from anywhere in the world. We will do a quick value of the coins to let them know if there’s any value to them or if they should jus spend them or take them to the bank.”
This is the third year for it. Lawryniw says the most intriguing pieces that showed up were Roman coins from 57 A.D.
“They didn’t have much value,” he’s quick to point out. “They were only about $10 or $15 apiece because there was no mintage figures, so we don’t know how many were made, or if this is a novelty item or not, but they were silver.”
“What’s It Worth, Timmins?” runs from 1:30pm to 4:30pm Sunday.
